TSM McLaren F1 LM XP1 '95

Post by David » Wed Aug 12, 2015 6:23 pm

I've been waiting for this one for a long long long time! I was so patient that I easily passed on the AUTOart. Despite the inaccuracies towards the real car, I always prefer the shape and stance of the TSM. They were smart enough to not add a stupid licencse plate at the back like AUTOart.

I just wish they had a better QC...

Great images as usual but I'm still not sold on that the TSM wins over the AUTOart. WTF is up with the front wheel off-set?

Can you please send me a few images when completed without the watermark? Much appreciated. Thank you

man, that 2nd pic! :drool: Stance (other than the front wheel track, as KRAFTIG mentioned) looks so nice & aggressive.

Looking forward to seeing more of your pics, David.

Hey guys! Sorry It took me some time to process the pictures... :(

Dave, the front off-set is all right in hand. The shadow makes it look bad.
Kwando, the LM XP1 is not supposed to have an intake on the left side. The oil tank shouldn't be there too. Both are directly derivated from the GTR. TSM didn't want to bother I guess. That's the main obvious issues in my eye but some collectors found more mistakes.
Gavin, yes, STANCE! :D

Pics look great though! One thing that's really jumping out at me is the position of the steering wheel looks insanely high. UNless that's how it's suppose to look.
